    He's a bit young, sure, but Harrison's old and we lovingly embrace that he'll make the role amazing as Indy.

    I don't see the comparison. Its more about inexperience and the quality of performance he can bring to the character for me.

    At least it's not Mark Wahlberg though.

    ^ I think Wahlberg was considered back when Antoine Fuqua was going to direct it. It's a shame they couldn't get Sam Worthington. He would've nailed it.

    Damn... yeah, Cole Hauser WOULD have been awesome as Duke. I hadn't thought of that. I remember I really wanted him for Nick Fury, because he'd have been perfect. But instead we get... Samuel L. Jackson. Who will not play Nick Fury. He'll play... Samuel L. Jackson.

    Well, I've said it before and I'll say it again...Nathan Fillion would have provided great screen presence and charisma in the role of Duke. But obviously, the filmakers want to go younger. So here we have some young (more importantly, young LOOKING) dude playing the guy who's supposed to be the Joe's 1ST SGT! Well, at least the actor is southern. I had heard rumors that Duke would be from NY.

    Fillion has too much charisma for Duke, IMHO. I think the cocky, headstrong Flint is perfect for Fillion. It plays better to his strengths as an actor.

    Well, if Duke is to be kinda the center point, then I don't think giving Duke more personality is a bad thing. In fact, I think it may well be necessary in this particular case. So Fillion is my choice.

    SIR!? I work for a living! ;)

    Seriously, I should stop thinking about other actors...it's too heartbreaking...

    ...I just can't believe their casting choice. I'm still in denial.

    I'd never seen this Tatum guy in anything, but they have been showing Step Up like 24/7 on Starz, so I finally got bored enough to watch it. I think he'll be fine as Duke. He has the look, and he can act just fine. He's a bit too young as many have said, but we'll see once we get a trailer or some clips.

    I watched some of coach carter the other night. Tatum doesn't have many lines and was mostly just playing a Eminem style white ghetto kid.

    While I may not like the dudes music, he has had Janet Jackson, Alyssa Milano, Scarlett Johnassen, Jessica Biel etc etc etc...

    Channing Tatum has had a fistful of lube and a samwhich bag.

    Dude can avvy JT all he wants :up:
